Las Meninas

Las Meninas

Available now

An Arts Society lecture by Dr. Jacqueline Cockburn. This talk is a section of a longer lecture outlining Velázquez’s arrival in Madrid from Seville and his gradual rise at Court. In this lecture Jacqueline pays attention to one painting, probably the artist’s most famous ‘Las Meninas’ 1656, which she unravels for the viewer and considers the possible reasons why he painted it and what he hoped to gain from it. Filmed by the wonderful Natural Light Films.
